Philip Seymour Hoffman narcotic abuser

Twenty three years sobriety gone


Philip Seymour Hoffman narcotic abuser

Philip Seymour Hoffman, who we know from such great movies like Capote, and The Ides of March, has started using narcotics again. Seymour had been sober for more than twenty three years. A year ago, he couldn’t resist the temptations, that are always present in his line of work, and gave in. He went back to being a narcotic abuser. Seymour has said about this: “started slowly with prescription pills, and recently escalated to snorting heroin.”
Philip Seymour Hoffman did want his former life back, and decided to go back to rehab.

He did explain to sources, that the heroin abuse had been limited to seven days. During those days he realized, that he couldn’t control the situation any longer himself, and asked for help. He checked in to the detox center for narcotic abuse, on the East Coast, and stayed there for ten days. He checked out of there the past Friday. Phillip Seymour Hoffman, was quoted saying that he didn’t do it all on his own. He said  “a great group of friends and family” helped him to see the light, and he asked them for help to overcome his dependence of narcotics

Maybe part of this motivation had to do with the fact that Philip Seymour Hoffman will star in the new instalment of the widely popular The Hunger Games. He will play the character, Plutarch HeavensbeePlutarch is the successor of Seneca Crane, the head Game maker.

This Heavensbee is just as calculating, as Seneca Crane used to be. During the trailer Seymour Hoffman says, as his character Plutarch: ‘ I agree she should die, but in the right way. At the right time. Katniss Everdeen is a symbol. We don’t have to destroy her, just her image. Show them that she’s one of us now. Let them rally behind that. They’re gonna hate her so much they just might kill her for you.’ This in response to President Snow‘s question:  ‘She’s not who they think she is. She just wants to save her skin. It’s as simple as that. She has become a beacon of hope for them. She has to be eliminated. What do you think?’

During the movie Philip Seymour Hoffman character will become commander of the rebel forces of District 13. Jennifer Lawrence will once again reprise her role of Katniss Everdeen. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be released in November. Now that Philip Seymour Hoffman is no longer a narcotic abuser, he has been invited back to the set which is currently located in Europe.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is especially popular among a very young crowd. Will Philip Hoffman’s former status as narcotic abuser play any role, in influencing this crowd? Would they think it’s OK, to abuse drugs, as long as after a year, you realise that you have a problem, and should check into a rehab facility for ten days? Have these ten days been enough? Or should Seymour have gotten the full thirty day treatment, in order to really get away from being a narcotic abuser? Twenty three years he has been able to resist the temptations, and a year ago he just gave up. Is this the message The Hunger Games public should remember, or is it the brave steps that Philip Seymour Hoffman took in order to face his demons, and once again resists the urges of going back to being a narcotic abuser.

Hopefully he will find strength in his own words, and not relapse again after a certain period of time: ‘The ambition, the drive, the wanting to be the center of attention, the wanting to succeed… They’re all inside me somewhere.”
